Eddie Borgo for Target – Jewelry, Handbags and Art

Update: I have been in my Target since writing this to buy a couple of things I was interested in. I found it all quite disappointing even down to the tacky cardboard display it was on. The clutch that I thought was cute was very cheap looking and feeling. Honestly, I wouldn’t use that clutch as a makeup bag much less a handbag. It felt like plastic. And the jewelry looked like it came from one of those jewelry kits you buy for little girls who are aged 7 And up. So I pass on this collection.

Eddie Borgo is the latest luxury brand to collaborate with Target. The Eddie Borgo for Target collection features more than 100 items including jewelry, accessories and wall art. The line launched yesterday, July 12th.

The collection features necklaces, bracelets and bags that can be customized by adding studs, totems and charms. Influenced by the craft culture of the 60s and 70s, the line gives the customer the opportunity to get creative and make one-of-a-kind accessories.

Be edgy. Be bold. Be charming and sophisticated. All in your own unique way. The Eddie Borgo for Target collection mixes stones, metals, shapes and shine in jewels, charms, bags and belts that you customize, mix, and match for a design that makes a statement: yours.

“We created components that all come apart and go back together – everything’s convertible,” said designer Eddie Borgo. “I’ve never seen this type of collaboration in the marketplace. It’s the first of its kind.”

It’s a very cool concept to create something your own. If you’re like me, I hate having the same anything as everyone else. So this gives you a little creative freedom to create something that’s all your own. These clutches appeal to me the most. I love that it’s classic with some edge.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Coming April 19, 2015!

When I heard last night that Lilly Pulitzer was the next designer to collab with Target, excitement would be an understatement! I’m a southern girl through and through, and Lilly Pulitzer is a southern girls staple of choice. Her prints are bright, fun, colorful and scream spring and summer. Even though Lilly calls to the southern belles, I know that women everywhere will be flocking to their local Target stores on April 19th to clear the shelves.

There’s going to be 250 items available to give your house and your wardrobe a good dose of Lilly Pulitzer! I can’t wait to stock up on some beautiful LP printed dresses at a more affordable price point. The LP for Target collab is following along with the Missoni line in offering a more lifestyle line of products for Target. So expect to see a whole range of home goods from decorative pillows to chairs to umbrellas. The price point will be from $25 to $250, with around 200 items under $30.  Here are some photos from the preview. What are you most excited for?
